I usually start with normal, and then increase the difficulty one step for each subsequent playthrough until I've beaten the hardest difficulty.

I go with the second highest difficulty if there is more than 3 (the Easy, Normal, Hard). Otherwise, I choose hard because I find games on normal to be too easy most of the time. I feel that, without the computer having some sort of advantage, I just go through the game in no time flat.

Honestly? Easy. I find that as I get a bit older my gaming skills haven't exactly gone up, and either way there are SO MANY good games to play that I don't see a huge point in artificially lengthening whatever I happen to be playing at the time by going to Hard and dealing with every enemy having 20x health and damage - generally speaking it's just artificial difficulty rather than anything legitimately interesting.

Recommended. If the game says something like "this is the way it's meant to be played", I'll choose that one.

I like to do a normal run then if it has a trophy do it on hard/insane or whatever its called.

Usually hard. I don't know, at this point most games that are coming out haven't been peeking my interest. If I get a game I would like it to last, even if that means I only play for an hour or two in a day and only beat one level. If it's a game I liked, I would rather slowly make my way through it than be bored wishing for another good game to come out.

Medium/Normal usually...sometimes I'll pick Hard for the lolz though.

Always go with the hardest one. Crank that mess from the start!

I start on the hardest difficulty unless the hardest needs to be unlocked, in which case I play the easiest difficulty that unlocks hardest, and do hardest on my second playthrough. I hate it when developers do this.

For first playthrough, always Easy. Story is my most important factor in a game.

Me too. I just want to have fun and not get frustrated.
